View Full Version : [ubuntu] network problem

December 23rd, 2010, 04:22 AM
just installed 10.10 and all went well during install, but as soon as i tried to do anything else, ubu won't connect to the network. i have dual boot with win 7 pro and there is no problem there. as a matter of fact, i am here on forum with no problem. am i doing something wrong or what??

thanks much...

try in failsafe mode or update the packages (in generic mode). there you can maybe fix the issue

If the suggestion above doesn't help, please post the output of these commands so we can get a better idea of what might be wrong:

lshw -C Network
lspci -nn
uname -a
grep NetworkManager /var/log/syslog

Also, are you trying to connecting via ethernet or wirelessly?
